You’ve probably been seeing avocado toast pop up in your Instagram feed for a while—and you may even be sipping avocado cocktails—but things avo-wise just went next level: avocado roses are officially trending.
What are avocado roses? They’re mini green sculptures, carved into floral shapes. Health bloggers like Healthy Nibbles And Bits’ Lisa Lin kicked off the trend with a few stunning avo-rose ‘grams in March, and now it’s starting to pick up speed. The hashtag #avocadorose has been used over 1,400 times—not quite what #avocado has racked up (well over 3 million) or #avocadotoast (more than 116,000)—but a definite indicator that this trend has arrived.
We already know that Instagramming your food actually makes it taste better (seriously, science says so!). How do you do it? Lin shares these tips with her followers. Watch her Instagram video or get the steps here:
Step 1: Peel the skin completely off.
Step 2: Slice the avocado into thin slices.
Step 3: Fan the avocado slices out, standing them up.
Step 4: Carefully curl one end toward the center.
Step 5: Carefully curl the other end toward the center, wrapping it around the slices you already curled. Voila!
